This year, I've realized that the brightest realizations come from the most cruel moments of weakness. My tumblr demonstrates my rises and falls with myself and the wold around me. You can't change your family, and you can't change your past, but you can change yourself. That being said, don't ever think you have to live up to this strongest person in the world thing. It's weird to try and find a balance between so many of these things in life, but al you can do is forgive, move forward, do what makes you happy, and live for the happiness of yourself. I'm not saying be selfish and self-centered, but if everyone in the world suddenly turns against you one day, you'll at least have someone besides god that believes in you--yourself. You must live for yourself, and do as much as you can to try to make others' happiness possible, without compromising yours.
I just asked my baby cousin what he wanted for Christmas and he said “COAL!!!!!!” And I was like “now why on earth would you want coal?” And he just smiled and said “Because it turns into diamonds” and that is the most optimistic thing I’ve ever heard in my life

You can quit your job, quit your parents, quit school, quit trying to impress others, quit doing laundry, quit drawing inside the lines, quit picking up after yourself, quit waking up early, quit your friends, quit lying, and quit running. You can quit just about everything, but you cannot quit on yourself. You cannot quit on your dreams. So leave behind the things that pull you down and never stop striving to reach your goals. Be yourself and be the best version of you that you can be.
YES. I’ve always said, you can leave behind and run away from a lot of things, so you have to love yourself and make sure you’re always trying to be the person you want to be. You’re stuck with yourself forever, and you have to spend every minute being happy with yourself.
